The new Mazda3 Fastback: an even more concentrated mix of style, sophistication and responsiveness
The new Mazda3 Fastback is more highly emotive to drive than ever before, yet also smoother, silkier and softer on the road. It’s this broad spread of talents that keep it at the forefront of a highly competitive class. With a host of new technology features that are all designed to improve the drive in every way, the Mazda3 Fastback provides a driving experience that’s like no other.
G-Vectoring Control, the first of Mazda’s SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS technologies, has been introduced on the Mazda3 Fastback. Focusing on delivering improved ride comfort and reducing vibration, while at the same time enhancing the pin-sharp handling the Mazda3 Fastback is famed for, it varies engine torque to optimise wheel load. Making good use of its award-winning range of SKYACTIV petrol and diesel engines, this new Mazda3 introduces technology that sees the class-leading responses and refinement of these engines improved even more. Natural Sound Smoother (NSS) technology reduces engine noise while Transient Control provides a more positive throttle response.
Subtle exterior and interior styling and quality improvements mean the Mazda3 is sharper looking and plusher feeling than it has ever been. New designs for the three-dimensional grille, alloy wheels and wing mirrors are accompanied by three new paint colours – Machine Grey Mica, Eternal Blue Mica and Sonic Silver Metallic – and optional LED headlights. Inside, materials and design have been enhanced and new technology includes a colour head-up display and electric parking brake. Whichever way you look at it, the new Mazda3 Fastback has been designed with the driver in mind.
Highlights of the new Mazda3 Fastback include:
- 105PS 1.5-litre or 150PS 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel, or 120PS and 165PS 2.0-litre SKYACTIV-G petrol engines
- Natural Sound Smoother and G-Vectoring Control technology improve refinement and agility
- Improved interior quality and design
- Optional enhanced colour head-up display system and adaptive LED headlights
